Newtown is a vibrant suburb best known for its diversity of people and thriving street culture and art. A hub of activity, it has many characteristics perfect for street photography - people, cafes, vendors, street merchants, historical buildings and many unexpected surprises along the way!

You will begin the workshop at Café Newtown exploring the busy and colourful King Street as it comes to life. Explore the urban landscape that unfolds as markets set up, cafes open and people start to fill the streets. There are old antique shops and charming eclectic speciality stores plus many unique spaces heavy with street art as well as the local residents and their body art. Your adventure takes you through the historic streets and lanes in search of inspiration and creativity.

Break for lunch at one of the local establishments and debrief on the day so far. This is a great opportunity to exchange stories and ask as many questions as you like.

After lunch, your focus will be refining the mornings experience; your experienced tutor will fine tune your technique with one on one coaching.

By the end of this unique workshop, you will have photographed a charming visual story of one of Sydney’s most iconic suburbs and its community.
